Once delivered, the Product(s) ordered will become your property (provided they have been paid for in full) and your responsibility and, except in relation to products that are damaged or faulty when delivered or have been incorrectly delivered, we will not accept any liability for their loss, damage or destruction after they have been delivered.
We strongly advise you to thoroughly check your goods upon receipt, please read through and sign the "Proof of Delivery" (POD) and sign in the relevant sections as this will protect your interests, regarding any claim concerning short delivery and/or damaged and/or defective goods found on delivery, or concerning damaged or defective goods found at a later date. We do not accept any claims for damage caused by you the customer.
In order to make sure you receive your goods as soon as possible, if you are not at home when we try to deliver we might leave your parcel with one of your neighbours.

In case we cannot reach you or your neighbours to receive your parcel we will leave a card in your letterbox to notify you that we tried to deliver your parcel. Please follow the instructions on the card to schedule a delivery day. You will find the contact details on the card.
- Returns Procedure
If you wish to return any product purchased on our Website you should follow the return instructions provided on the paperwork included with your delivery.
You can RETURN any item that you’ve ordered online from FITFLOP.CO.UK within 28 days of dispatch date for free with your free Royal Mail returns label provided on your delivery note. Please note that free returns is for UK only.
Please COMPLETE the RETURNS’ NOTE on the reverse of your dispatch note and include it inside your package.
You must obtain a receipt for your return package at the Post Office counter, which can be used to track the item(s) you are returning, should for some reason they not arrive at our warehouse. We unfortunately cannot accept liability for returned goods that we don’t receive, or for those that get damaged in shipping on their return.
In all cases, except where an item is faulty, the item(s) returned must be in their original and saleable condition without having been worn outdoors. This includes all packaging and labelling. (If you’re trying them on for fit, may we suggest you stay inside while you walk around in them?)
All footwear will be inspected on return.
Goods are your responsibility until they reach our warehouse, so make sure you package them up well to prevent any damage or lost shoes during shipping.
The INITIAL POSTAGE AND PACKAGING charge IS NON-REFUNDABLE (unless otherwise stated).
PLEASE indicate the REASON FOR RETURN using the CODES provided and, in the case of a fault or error on our part, please provide a full description in the space provided. We appreciate your feedback and will use it to improve our service.
We process refunds for products received by post within 14 days of receipt, and will notify you by email when your return has been processed.
In the odd instance that items have been shipped to you that do not conform to your original order, we will refund your initial delivery charge and return postage. Please return the items to us using Royal Mail recorded delivery, or standard Royal Mail (retaining your proof of postage).
If the damage to a faulty item is deemed to be malicious (who, you ask, would want to attack an innocent FITFLOP footwear item?), no refund (not product, nor delivery charge, nor return postage) will be made.
We cannot accept liability nor can we take responsibility for any bank charges that you may have incurred during FITFLOP.CO.UK online orders can only be returned by post to the FITFLOP.CO.UK warehouse address below. Sorry, but items purchased from FITFLOP.CO.UK may not be returned via any of our retailer partners, as selections and styles vary from retailer to retailer.
On receipt at our warehouse, standard inspection checks will be carried out in conjunction with the reason specified on the return and once approved a refund to the original payment method will be issued. Please allow up to ten (10) working days from receipt for this refund to be made.
Delivery charge refunds can only be made in accordance with your legal rights under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 and other applicable legislation. For further information about your legal rights contact your local authority Trading Standards department or consumer advice centre (for example the Citizen’s Advice Bureau for UK customers).

If you supplied us with your email address when entering your payment details (or if you have a registered account with us), we will notify you by email as soon as possible to confirm that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product.

We may choose not to accept your order for any reason and will not be liable to you or to anyone else in those circumstances. The contract between us (“Contract”) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.

These prices include VAT but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to your order before your payment is finalised as set out in our Delivery and Returns Policy. Prices and delivery charges displayed are valid and effective only in the United Kingdom.
Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.
Our Website contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced.

If a Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
